    I recently bought a 1942 Commercial Mauser HSc, (SN 803915, Peak Production). I posted info about it on the Mauser HSc DATA thread (Post 375) a couple of weeks ago, so the SN and markings could be added to the database. I posted pictures as well. This thread had not seem any activity since...

    https://www.gunbroker.com/item/829242344 I recently bought this gun and am wondering if I got a good/reasonable deal on it. I saw other all matching "nazi" Lugers on GunBroker sell for $2500+. The magazine possibly does not match, how much would that effect its price? Any...

    Hello, First-time poster... I'm writing with a mystery. I'm trying to help a friend track down a Mauser Luger and holster that his grandfather brought back from WWII, and which he sadly pawned when he was in a hard spot back in 2011. His grandfather took it from a German officer who...

    I ran across this strange marking on a Mauser 1914 Post WWI (4th Variant?). Does anyone have a clue of what this sideways "7" means. There are no other unusual external markings or unusual proofs on the pistol except the one seen normally. Thank you friends!

  9. WTB: Nazi era Luger

    Want to Buy Trader
    Referred here from the k98 forum. Looking for an all matching (including the magazine) Nazi era Luger. Not looking to spend over $2700 for one. Holster not needed right now, I can get a nice one later but would be a plus if included. A preferred code date combo would be a 1940 42 code to match...

    Want to Sell Trader Board
    Want to sell what I thought was a very nice Mauser HSC holster I have now learned it is for a PA-63. It is in near mint condition, only flaw is on the flap and is visible in the photos. Stitching is tight and the mag pouch is not deformed, I do not see repairs of any kind. Just...

    Mauser Pistols, Revolvers & Holsters, 1968-now
    Hello, Sorry, not exactly in the correct forum but closest I saw for a post-war Mauser pistol. This French made HSc is roughly 10k from the beginning and is one of four I own. I am used to the intertwinned "RW" proof that all my French HSc have, what I have not seen before is the Ordnance bomb...

    1900-1918 : German (non-P08) Pistols & Holsters
    I recently purchased a c96 with the marking "P.L.2.18" on the front grip. The serial number is 124xxx, it is in 7.63mm, and it has a 1920 rework stamp but does not appear to have been reworked (barrel not cut). I'm trying to figure out what "P.L.2.18" represents. The combination of letters...
  15. Red 9 Broomhandle Opinion

    1900-1918 : German (non-P08) Pistols & Holsters
    Friends - I need your input on this broomhandle. These are all the pictures I have and I know they aren't perfect. Do you have any concerns or reservations from what you see? The biggest thing that jumps out at me is that this is nowhere near the 24 grooves it should have. I believe I counted...

  20. C96 M30 front sight question

    German: German Mfg. (non-P08) Pistols & Holsters.
    Hello all. I have before me a C96 that appears to be an M30 "transitional" variant in the 755xxx serial range. The numbers appear to match on everything except the bolt stop so the pre-M30 lock mechanism appears (in my humble non-expert opinion) to be original to the lower receiver. Assembled...
